Originally posted by sspiker:Plus a 2nd-round contract on Carradine (or a 4th-round contract on Lattimore) is a lot cheaper than the 1st-round contract that they would've gotten if uninjured. So the "wasting cheap contract" argument doesn't hold water, either.
Just wanted to add, we have world class medical institutions and doctors a stone's throw away from Santa Clara. Why not use them? A lot of the experimental treatments and advances in medicine come from research institutions in the Bay Area. I just see the front office taking advantage of that knowledge and skill set that surrounds them in the Bay Area. These institutions are years ahead of everybody else in medical skill and expertise.
